Pirates and slaves: How overfishing in Thailand fuels human trafficking and the plundering of our oceans

A report examining the relationship between overfishing, Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing, and labour exploitation in Thailand’s fishing industry. The authors argue that overfishing and IUU fishing have caused ecosystem decline in Thailand’s waters, generating pressures leading to the widespread use of slavery. The report offers recommendations for the thai government, and seafood producers and buyers.
